An Atlanta police officer faces drug charges after she was found inside a College Park apartment with two suspected drug dealers and about $30,000 worth of narcotics, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Iris Rowe is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, Atlanta police told Channel 2. She faces three drug charges in the Monday afternoon raid at Alexandria Landing apartments on Godby Road.

Investigators in the drug sting identified Rowe because she had her department-issued gun and identification on her, College Park police Chief Keith Meadows told Channel 2. Atlanta police gear and uniforms were also inside the apartment.

Officers found marijuana, pills, guns and cash inside the apartment.

Jeremy Laye and Tony Robinson were also arrested and are accused of selling drugs from the home, Channel 2 reported.

Police are not sure of Rowe’s involvement. Authorities questioned her, but “she didn’t make any statements at that time,” Meadows said.
